Bought car new in 2000. Have 203k miles Passed down to college daughter. We had an infrequent problem with intermittent stalling and CEL. This had been occurring since new but could not solve the issue. Codes indicated MAP Sensor and replaced with used one for $50. Did NOT solve problem. Did an ECM reprogram for $90 at dealership and fixed problem! We do regular maint and car has been great. Great value, pretty good gas mileage but most importantly safe and reliable. Desirable combination. Would recommend you find a well kept one and go buy it!
Enjoy premium sound with sub woofer. Road steering feel is good. Easy tp get comfortable in front seats - tight for rear
Brakes are a bit light - not a problem once you adjust
Overall I have loved my Subarus but after
my recent massive outpouring of money to
get a new engine for my 2000 subaru limited
outback sedan, I will never buy another one.
I have 90,000 miles on my car and needed a
new engine it was/is ridiculous. The engine
was insanely expensive and still doesn't run
perfectly. The car performed great on my
montana winter roads, was comfortable to
drive, needs more power but I suppose that
is why they introduced the 6 cylinder model.
The AWD is better in the subaru than any
other car I test drove.
More power, longer warranty, still could use
some improvement on interior comforts, 40/
60 split rear seat.
After almost 4 years of driving this
vehicle, I would still not replace this
with any other car. The ride is
fantastic, the handling great, and the
quality of assembly cannot be passed. I
have had to perform only regular
maintainance, and have not had any
repair problems. I would, and have,
recomend this car to anyone.
Ride, comfort, appearance, quality.
I would like to have a split fold down
rear seat, as in my Subaru Impreza.
This would make the car more usable.
Other then that, the only problem I
have had with this car is the Dealer
where I purchased it. I would not
return to the dealer for anything.
